Maltby Pelletreau George Washington Coin Silver Place Spoon
click for details
A well-known name in early 19th century New York City silver, Maltby Pelletreau is also associated with Charleston, South Carolina through a variety of partnerships.

This spoon bears his "M.P" punch, along with an "anchor, star, bust" pseudo hallmark that McGrew assigns to Pelletreau post 1831.

This correlates with the likely 1832 date of this singular spoon that features a bust of George Washington. It likely was intended as a commemorative of the 100th anniversary of Washington's... Click for details

Offered is a rare surviving American coin silver spoon bearing a mark of SPACKMAN, in the Philadelphia taste, probably for George Spackman, jeweler born CT in 1798, residing in Philadelphia circa 1820s into the 1850s.

The mark on this spoon, even though rubbed, was used for "Philadelphia Silversmiths" by Hollan, as no other examples have been... Click for details

This 7 3/8" long, 1.2 T. oz., tea or dessert knife is unusual in several regards.

Second, it an "Olive" pattern, which is one not commonly found among Tiffany's offerings.

Lastly the maker is unknown, with this only marked "Tiffany & Co." on the backside of the blade, and absent a manufacturer's identification that... Click for details

These teaspoons by form probably date to about 1825. Each spoon has a good clear maker's... Click for details
